Cant believe this is not ranked number one. The staff are lovely but you are never rushed so the atmosphere is very relaxed. I have eaten in every restaurant and pub in Formby regularly and the Left Bank is the only one I can say "I have never had a bad meal" . The food is freshly cooked not food... More

We have eaten here on occasion because of its central location. The competitive prices attract customers, but the food is not as good as ready made M+S. We have found the staff unwelcoming.

The Left Bank is a great place to eat. Its not over-priced and the staff are friendly. Its one of the few restaurants you visit and virtually know what its going to cost. Best to book a table to avoid disappointment although we have just turned up and they have always found us a table.

This is an amazing little restaurant with the feel of a larger one! My daughter and I often take advantage of the lunchtime menus or the early bird ones. The same wonderful food at a cheaper price. The Caeser salad is to die for! Upstairs is room for a hire for occasions which we have done. Cannot fault this delightful... More

This has been a favourite of my family's for the past 5 years and we still love it. The atmosphere is great, the owners are so friendly and the service is always fantastic- it strikes a good balance between being attentive and not being too overbearing. Our last visit was for my 23rd birthday meal. My mum and dad went... More
